  • 1 cup (140 grams) flour
  • 140 grams cold butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup ice cold water * see note 1


  • In a medium bowl, add the flour and salt. Mix together.
  • Cut the butter into cubes and add it to the flour. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the dough until the butter is in pieces the size of peas. The dough will be quite crumbly.
  • Make a hole in the center of the dough and pour in all of the water. Stir to combine the dough.
  • Add the dough to a floured surface and pat it into a rough square. You will still be able to see pieces of butter and the dough may seem quite dry but it will come together with each roll.
  • Flour the rolling pin, and roll the dough out into a rectangle about 25-30cm long.
  • Fold the bottom third of the dough over the middle of the dough. Fold the upper third of the dough on top of the middle too. Rotate the dough one-quarter turn, roll out again, and repeat the folding pattern. Use flour as needed to stop the dough from sticking.
  • Roll out, fold, and turn the dough at least 6 or 7 times.
  • When done, wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour, or overnight. At this point you may freeze the dough.
  • Roll out with flour when you are ready to use the pastry.


1. To make sure the water is icy cold, measure 1/3 cup of water into a 1 cup measure. Top it up with ice cubes, stir it around and pour out 1/3 cup of now icy cold water
